come down on Heartland’s facade
15, 2000] The
folks in downtown Lincoln got their first view of Heartland Community College’s
"new look" yesterday when the wooden barricades protecting the front
of the building at 620 Broadway came down. Although the new facade still needs a
little work, including an awning and light fixtures, Heartland staff members
think it’s a big improvement.
pulmonary rehab program
15, 2000] Everett
Kennett of Lawndale suffers from emphysema. Thanks to the new pulmonary
rehabilitation program at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital (ALMH), Everett’s
life just got easier. Everett joined the pulmonary rehab program to increase his
stamina with activities. "I wanted to be able to go hunting this fall
without being short of breath," he said. Everett feels he will meet that
goal. Everett stated that when he first started pulmonary rehab, he was very
apprehensive about working on the treadmill; now it is his favorite thing to do.
15, 2000] The
Internet has enhanced and blessed the lives of many. The ability to communicate
and obtain information in an instant without great expense has brought even
long-term computer holdouts and computer deniers to purchase systems to gain
access to the great riches offered on the net. And Internet users have found one
other blessing of the Internet age: access to the treasure of their imaginations
— free programs and software.
the love of Pete...it’s only
By Jeff Mayfield
15, 2000] Now
that the fall sports season is upon us here in Lincoln and Logan County, I
thought it might be good to review why sports programs even exist to begin with.
I should point out that I am not an expert in this field.
I am not a sports psychologist, although I’d love to play one on
television. I have no credentials.
I am not endorsed or sanctioned by the ISHA, the NCAA (thank God, talk
about the kiss of death...) or the NBA. I
have never received expressed written consent for any accounts or depictions of
any games by Major League Baseball. However,
I do think I have as much experience in this one little area of life and more
than most of my 40-plus-year-old counterparts.
I have noticed a disturbing national trend when it comes to scholastic
sports competition. Before we begin
covering this year’s plethora of games in our region, the LDN will try to
remind athletes, coaches, parents and fans the reasons that we participate.
I hope that from this point on, Lincoln will be known as the town that
bucked the trend...that in our area, kids learned the fundamentals, developed
character and skills like teamwork, and also that they had a lot of fun along
